Yes it’s very good a bit on the dark side, not sure if it’s the best movie in the last 12 months but definitely worth a look.
I can’t work out the Oscars. There’s some real barf that have won over the years. Whoever votes are a very reactive and unadventurous bunch.

“The roster of the Academy's approximately 6,000 motion picture professionals is a "closely guarded secret".[2] While the great majority of its members are based in the United States, membership is open to qualified filmmakers around the world.”

I did prefer, Once upon a time in hollywood, 1917, and The gentlemen
I finished once upon a time in Hollywood last night a tbh, whilst it was well done I found the first 2 hours a bit boring. Last 1/2 hour is awesome though.

Then again i watched the Irishman in one sitting and enjoyed the lot 🤷🏼‍♂️.

I keep pushing this podcast for anyone that likes long form podcasts, but honestly they don’t come anymore thorough.

Currently doing a series on Jim Jones that would be better then anything ever covered on Jonestown.

He’s had to divide the latest episode into two half’s and the first half is just over 6 hours long🙃. It’s the 4th episode covering the topic. Reckon this guy doesn’t get the love he deserves because people have labeled him as alt right because of some shit he’s written on Twitter (no shit read the reviews on apple podcasts). Anyway give it a go. He rivals Dan Carlin imo.

Ok Hojuman a few more, just looking at my Box Office file on the pc:

Sympathy for Mr Vengence
Sympathy for Lady Vengence
The Bow
The Chaser
Yellow Sea
Memoir of a Murder
Confession of Murder
Peppermint Candy
Poetry

Oh yeah and Burning.

I think South Korea has been consistently making great cinema for the last 20 years.

Quirky, touching, thoughtful, brutal and batshit crazy all in 2hrs of pure escapism, that's what Korean cinema is for me.

******* brilliant :thumbsu:
